This rose drawing has a few more steps than most of our other tutorials, as we wanted to make the steps as clear and easy to follow as possible.

Step 1:

Start your rose drawing by drawing an oval. It doesn’t have to be perfect, as nothing in nature is perfect. However you draw it, your rose drawing will turn out great.

Start by drawing an oval.

Step 2

Draw a small spiral inside the oval. The direction of the spiral doesn’t matter, nor does the number of turns.

Draw a spiral inside the oval

Step 3

Draw a heart around the spiral – starting at the top with the heart opening touching the oval. Again, don’t worry about the shape of the heart, the left and right sides don’t have to be the same.

The other parts of the heart do not need to touch the oval, but there is nothing wrong if they do.

Draw a heart around the spiral

Step 4

Draw a straight line around the heart shape – starting at the top and making a nice curve (like a very loose S). Draw a pointed shape (V) and bring it down to the bottom of the heart.

Heart shaped

Step 5

Create a similar shape on the other end of the heart, this time without the pointed tip, and draw a straight line so that it touches the previous shape.

And on the other side

Step 6

Now draw a U shape (you can make it slightly curved at the top). Can you see the rose forming?

Step 7

Add some details. Draw a curve from the top of the V to the bottom of the flower.

Add some details

Also, add two lines connecting the oval to the heart – if your “heart” doesn’t touch the oval on either side.

Step 8

Draw some sepals under the flower.


Step 9

Draw the stem and leaves.

Draw a tree trunk

Step 10

Color your rose drawing.
